Our write-up of Marvel's SDCC panel is coming your way very soon, but towards the end of the presentation they brought out an Academy Award-winning actress and announced that she would be playing Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel. I'm talking about an uber-talented young lady with brains, class, beauty, wit, charm and a love for STAR WARS. Of course, I'm talking about Brie Larson! You can see our picture from the panel below, as well as the official logo released by Marvel up above!

Plot details are under wraps for now, as well as who might be helming this picture, but there's no denying that Marvel is off to a great start! Their proficiency in casting knows no bounds, and I'm sure Brie will be quick to become a fan favorite (as if she wasn't one already)!

CAPTAIN MARVEL is scheduled to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.

I really wanted Katheryn Winnick a I thought she epitomized Danvers to the T and she was used to fighting given that she is a trained martial artist. But I can't be too upset, Brie will nail it as long as they give her a good script.

Even though Emily Blunt was my personal top choice for Captain Marvel, I'm sure Brie will do just as well in the role.

Fantastic actress. I have no doubt she'll nail it. Awesome news! (Though she was always my #2 choice behind Blunt but I figured that was a pipe dream anyway)

Let's see if they'll give her an awesome script like GOTG!

Yeah, she's pretty amazing...

I think she'll do a great job. Not sure how the character will do with it's lack of originality, but hopefully they'll put her in a well-written film with a solid villain. We know she'll own the part if they put her in a good position.
